Unfortunately this is the End

I've been resting at my house for two weeks now with an injury.  I have to get surgery for it and I believe that I will not be able to return this year before snow falls in Whasington.  At least it happened now since they have closed 80 miles of the trail in Oregon because of fires.

Day 12 Mile 924 to 942 Donahue Pass and Finish

This was my Dads last day on the trail.  We had 1 more pass to climb, and then it was all downhill to Tuolumne Meadows where my Dad was finishing.  We climbed only 2000 ft and Descended 3400 ft.

Day 11 Mile 858 to 924 JMT Alternative

Today we went our farthest mile wise.  We went by he Devils Postpile, and then decided to take the John Muir Trail Alternative since it looked more scenic than the PCT and my dad wanted to complete the JMT since they were the same trail except this 14 miles.  We climbed 4400 ft and 4700 ft over the 25 miles.

Day 10 Mile 879 to 895 Silver Pass

This day we got a late start since we took the ferry from VVR across lake Edison.  The lake was extremely low so we had to walk 3 miles back to the trail instead of 1.  T

hen we had to gain 5300 ft of elevation and descend 3100 ft.
